Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko is likely to remain at Manchester City beyong this summer, his agent has revealed.
Recent speculation has suggested that the 27-year old would leave the Blues this summer, with a host of big European outfits interested in his availability, including Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Napoli, amongst others.
However, the striker will continue to ply his trade at the Etihad Stadium, according to Dzeko's representative Irfan Redzepagic,
He told calciomercato.it: "At the moment I have not received any calls from Italy about Edin.
"These are just rumours. Dzeko will play again next season at Manchester City."
His agent then went on to claim that his client is happy in England and is planning to remain at City for the 2013-14 campaign.
Manchester City signed Dzeko from Bundesliga side VFL Wolfsburg in January 2011 for a fee in the region of £27 million.
The Bosnian international has struggled to gain a regular first team place ahead of Argentinian team mates Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez. Despite only starting 16 games, Dzeko has managed to scored 14 goals in the Premier League making him the club’s top scorer.
Since his big money arrival, the 'Bosanski dijamant', or 'Bosnian Diamond', has netted a total of 30 goals in 76 appearances for the Premier League side.
Manchester City's rumoured interest for strikers like Radamel Falcao, Edinson Cavani and Marco Reus has put Dzeko's future under the spotlight.
